Transplant Families Face Financial Difficulty
In crisis, families seeking a transplant face crippling costs not always covered by insurance. While families put jobs on hold, bills for housing, travel and long-term care associated with treatment often devastate finances and exceed insurance caps.
Steep Mortality Rates
One in five children on the transplant list die before receiving an organ. Children waiting for heart transplants face a greater chance of dying on the wait list than all other ages needing transplants.
